[b]Japan and the world:[/b] Nuclear radiation in Japan from the 6 damaged reactors will affect not only Japanese
people, cows, pigs, fishes etc. but by prevailing westerlies will come first to Pacific islands and then to
Canada, the US, Central and S America, Mexico... some animals will die sooner than they are murdered for
food... other animals will absorb the radiation in their flesh in concentrations 1000 to 1000000 times more
than in the atmosphere... and will be toxic to eat. Plants will be safer to eat with lower concentration levels
of radiation. Safest will be the fruits which like fetuses in the mother are more protected than the trees,
vines and bushes from radiation.
